Im sitting here in the kitchen of our Indiana home we rent. Its very cute and the neighborhood is great.LOT of history here and im looking forward to day so we can find the museum and explore a bit. The ride up was nice and the kids giggled alot. we made it here in a little over 4 hours so that was great timing.Jolene is the only one still sick.Chase and her are on day 6 of the antibiotics. Chase is almost 100% better but Jolene has alot of chest congestion and a nasty cough that im watching for close. I made lasagna last night for dinner and Ithink everybody liked it :) Its my moms recipe.When the littles eat it you know its good. I bought up our school work.well its A Jesus Advent Celebration and its an amazing booklet for the study of Jesus.I cant wait to get into today.i have had so many thoughts and listening to God.My heart has been so heavy and tired. When I started over as the new me I think I also lost part of me while doing it.I love the loud very loud me I always have been.But I let go of what was really important to me and to my family.i allowed not so nice language in our house, shows that even my husband was like I think not. In my head I knew that was wrong but I wanted to do it anyway.So as im still on this new journey Im also grabbing along the way the things that mean a lot to me. Our number one reason we are here is Jesus.Jesus should be front and center in all we do.I have let that backslide on my children here lately. Yes we do bible study and learn His teachings but not really.we lost the meaning and the joy that really comes from His teachings. we got lost in the world of me me me.So asI try to get back on track and balance out the world and us it will be a challenge. I have great friends and family and not ever going let that change.Im just saying we need to focus on the reason we are here.I think alot of people are lost and need to know the story of Jesus and we are here to help.we have so much to be thankful for this year. My husband job which allows us to have everything we need and more.The beautiful home my husband built for us and enough land for the kids to go crazy and be kids.We are blessed for the house in St.Clair that housed us for the birth of Jolene and laughs and crys we had there.Im thankful for this house in Indiana that is big enough for all of us and then some.Im thankful for the health of my kids and family.Im really thankful we went and did our 9 week classes so we can be foster parents to kids who need a little love and support.these are just a few things im thankful this year. Really look at your life and give thanks.even if you look back and say you dont have much.Really you do...Look harder and you'll see all the great you have.Just look and sit and pray.
Im thinking....theres so much on my mind these days.Im ready to go to my friends home and hold the baby I have waited to hold for a long time.
I am wishing... Jolene's URI would go away already..
In the school room... Advent time!! Christmas crafts and cookies
Im creating.....Godly children
I am hearing...Jolene taking daddys brush up and down the wall next me. The sound of big trucks getting trash on the streets and the girls snoring in the living.
I am wearing... yoga pants,turtleneck, sweater and Christmas socks.
